I would bake love and thanks into a batch of cookies or goodies for everyone that has been keeping tabs on us recently (perhaps I’ll post an order form on here soon) but for now I have a note that I wrote thanking the woman who selflessly helped me and David pursue & achieve our pre-chemotherapy fertility options. I certainly don’t mean to diminish our appreciation of her by sharing the letter with the “world” but rather I mean to express to all of you who are reading my blog, sending us positive thoughts & cards & lolly-pops, going on afternoon walks, having morning coffee chats, and making sure that my students are taken care of: THANK YOU for helping us through even just the beginning of this treatment process. This is for all of you.
It is with the most humble gratitude that I write and send you a small token of our appreciation for your help. Your kindness and absolute selfless attention to my case provides a sense of hope to me about so much good that exists in our world.
My husband and I have seven embryos now frozen and in safe-keeping at Northern CA Fertility Medical Center in Roseville, CA. This clinic is phenomenal. As I enter the realm of treatment for my recent diagnosis I am encouraged and hopeful for a future in which we can share with our children how many people there are who truly have a heart and soul of gold.
Thank you and thank fertileHOPE. I hope someday to personally thank you and all those involved in support of LiveSTRONg and FertileHOPE.
Clare & David Wiley”
